Does Your Life Honor God?
“Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Cor 10:31; KJV). “And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men” (Col 3:23).
It’s easy to separate our spiritual life from our daily activities but really if we are walking in the spirit the two are intertwined. We don’t have to be in church to be led by the spirit. According to these verses everything we do should be done as an offering to the Lord whether its washing dishes, closing a business deal or singing in the choir. On the job, we should go the extra mile, work with excellence and give no one reason to complain about our performance or attitude.
“Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.” (1 Peter 2:12) As Christians we should be setting an example to the world in the workplace, with our families and in everything we do and say. If we approach our day to day tasks as something done for God it won’t go unnoticed.
Finally, let Jesus speak to us as quoted by the apostle John: “By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another” (John 13:35). Let’s commit to show the world God’s love and to bring glory and honor to God at all times and in all places.
